At World's End we are constantly updating our product portfolio with new state of the art tile technology and pride ourselves on being the market leaders within our sector. Below are some of the latest trends in tiles the way we see it.
Zoned areas are favoured over horizontal borders. Structure and texture for feature walls are in vogue.
Tumbled marble continues to be popular.
The demand for large format tiles is growing all the time and the advancement in technology will ensure a greater choice of new materials in the imminent future.
Minimal look and soft natural stone effects remain a constant in the market.
The Tuscan look remains highly influential on a number of tile purchases.
Keep your eye on a growing interest in modern aqua colours. Since its introduction into the Battersea showroom, the larger format Hydra range has proven extremely popular. Its high gloss look heralds a move away from the trend for honed natural stone look-a-likes.

Clays provide a gentle, reassuring continuity that harmonises with the environment and enhances a natural mood. To compliment the Clays range are matching paints and grouts to create a lasting design statement that brings tranquility to any room.
Stoneskin meets the requests of many who wish to attain a true-to-nature look, reminiscent of dry-stone walling. As the name suggests, this new finish is achieved by using the "skin" of natural stone which is then manufactured into cladding. It is easy to install and can be used for internal or external wall cladding. Stoneskin is available in 6 different natural stone products - ardesia nera, everest green, oriental basalt, maurya gold, oyster, and sunrise.
The Xilo story continues with Xilo Evolution - a range even more stunning than the original with three exciting new colours. It is contemporary and lively.
Damask, once restricted to formal rooms, has today come into much more general use than ever before in its long history. Damask patterns appear in our ceramic water green Hydra range. Most of the designs used in damasks today are copies of those woven centuries ago in Italy, Spain and France. Though damask weaving was not an English art, the English decorators of the 18th century used large quantities of Italian damasks, both for furniture coverings and as hangings for walls. Hydra is perfect for en-suites and bathrooms giving them a fresh look of grandeur.
"Wallpaper" patterns in glass mosaic continue to be fashionable and make great feature walls. They are perfect for both the domestic and commercial market.
The intricate pattern of the damask tile is complimented by the glass-like ceramic water green wall tile adding depth to even the smallest of spaces
